Presented by the Yorkville/Kleindeutschland historian, Kathy Jolowicz.

Born and raised in Yorkville/Kleindeutschland, Ms. Jolowicz’s parents immigrated from Leipzig, Germany in 1932 and were among the pioneers who built this once internationally famous Landmark, a phenomenon never to be experienced again. See how the Eastern and Middle Europeans lived and thrived together as one population. Learn how she keeps German Heritage alive today. View 36 panels and artifacts of New York City’s once vibrant Germantown, including beginning photos of the Parade.
